- DescriptionIt is 1963, and in her mansion in the foothills of the Pyrenees, Joana idles her days away, banished by her powerful husband and alienated from her family. Meanwhile, in Barcelona, her daughter Carla is impoverished and in trouble.Hating all her parents stand for, Carla has embraced the student movement against the Franco regime, but her father has been watching her, and, just before their wedding, her beloved fiance is arrested.Pregnant Carla runs to grandmother Maria, terrified, powerless to help either Luc or herself. Maria shelters her, but they kw their movements are still being followed. Why did her daughter Joana marry into the Franco regime and abandon her family? Maria has never understood.This is the story of three generations of women, torn apart by the Spanish Civil War, and by one determined man. It takes the arrival of an unkwn cousin for them to start building bridges. Martin carries his own ghosts, but he has come looking for his family, and his belief in them helps them unite to face the enemy together, one autumn in Catalonia.This is a story in which love wins over evil, and belief brings hope, emerging victorious into the sunshine of the Catalonian landscape.
